Celebrate Juneteenth

This event has been cancelled. We apologize for any inconvenience. 

Juneteenth honors the end of slavery in the United States and marks the day when federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas, in 1865 to ensure all enslaved people could be freed following the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation 30 months earlier. Learn more about this holiday and its meaning during a presentation from Dr. Kevin J. Jones of Indiana University-Purdue University Columbus. Registration required by 5 p.m. on June 17.
